Romania: GBE-3000A rockfall barrier withstands 10 t tree impact

13 Julio 2018

Recent abundant rainfalls triggered many tree falls in Romania. An about 18 meters high, solid tree, with an estimated weight of 10 tons fell on the top support ropes of a GBE-3000A rockfall barrier. Even if not designed for such impacts the barrier withstood with no significant damage. Also the barrier is ready to intercept rockfalls securing the traffic on the road below.
